Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?


Throughout my own life, I have been inspired by the people who led me. This has motivated me to develop into a leader in my own right so that I may give back to others as my leaders gave to me. This is evident in my roles at school, in clubs, and especially as a canoe trip guide at summer camps where I have been able to guide my campers in their personal growth and achievements. I am a Schulich Leader because I am already a leader in these aspects of my life and because I am excited to develop this role in a STEM setting.
